Meet and Greet Volunteers are being sought to help at Audley End

This role is all about people; engaging with visitors to help them get the most from their visit.

Walking around the magnificent gardens you will be a visible, friendly face ready to:

• Share information about the house and gardens and signpost areas of interest

• Answer visitor questions and provide a brief orientation to the site

• Direct visitors to facilities such as guidebooks, the virtual tour, toilets, and the café

• To promote volunteering at Audley End.

Sessions run from 10am to 4pm (5pm in the summer holidays) every day of the week from March to November with flexible sign-up to suit your availability; there is also the option to do a half-day.

Throughout the rest of the year, there are opportunities to volunteer at the weekends when the site is open to the public.


We are looking for confident, effective communicators who will be friendly and approachable to all visitors. Volunteers in this role will be required to stand for long periods, walk the site, and spend time outside in all weathers.
